OAKLAND — Jon Gruden has experienced several milestone since returning as Raiders head coach. Getting re-fitted in Silver and Black. That first offseason practice back. His return to Napa and training camp. The preseason stroll of the sidelines at Oakland Coliseum.
They all meant something to Gruden, who at times can be a nostalgic. He’ll have all the feels on Monday night against the Los Angeles Rams. These games, the ones that truly count, are why Gruden returned to coaching in the first place.
Raider Nation loves Gruden, especially in the East Bay. They should welcome him with open arms on Monday night, even after he traded a certain All-Pro edge rusher.
“This is really special for me,” Gruden said. “I know there’s been a lot of news this week with what has happened, but I want to do everything I can to help bring the Raiders back. I really like the effort that our team has put forth, our coaching staff. It will be special going out there Monday Night that’s for sure.”
Gruden spent his last nine years as Monday Night Football color analyst, and it’s no coincidence he’ll be featured in the show’s opening week. The Raiders and Rams play the second half of a doubleheader, with the full crew of analysts broadcasting live from Jack London Square.
